Service Overview

Revised times from 8th July 2018

We will be making changes to our services in the Maidstone and Malling area from 8th July. You can see more details here.

The times of Service 12 will be revised to allow for an improved service to Biddenden and Tenterden. Most buses that currently terminate at Headcorn will be extended through to and from Tenterden.

On Sundays the frequency will be doubled to half-hourly with all buses running beyond Headcorn to Biddenden and Tenterden.

In Maidstone Bus Station Service 12 buses will continue to depart from Stop J3.
